That's what it's all about....

Tonight at camp, we said good bye to our first week of 400+ campers. Right before they load up on the buses to go home, Young Life has a "Say So." This is taken from the verse in the Bible that says, "Let the Redeemed of the Lord say so."
Many campers remained standing to hold a microphone and tell us their name, where they were from and that they entered into a relationship with Jesus this week. I cried as they began. In the middle of it, Ashlyn leaned over and told me that she thought it was sad that they didn't accept Jesus when they were children. I explained that not all parents know about it and therefore can't teach it to their children. That is why it is so excited to have a place like YL camp where they might get to hear about a relationship with Jesus for their very first time!!!
It made my heart so happy for my children to watch what this camp is ALL about!

Our free time together as a family today was rich. I feel sustained to go into our 2nd week here at camp!
